Ben surprised us this week by preparing a tasty salmon dinner and taking us to see Christmas Ships!
We drove to a park on the shores of Lake Washington and listened to live jazz music, ate cookies and drank cocoa and cider. There was a large bonfire to keep warm and santa was there handing out mini gifts. Then the Christmas ships arrived. The choir aboard the ship gave a 20 minute concert of carols to all on shore. It was especially nice as the evening was beautiful with a large moon and stars!

What do you get someone who is 95?
A digital photo frame!
Over the weekend, I assembled almost 180 photos to be sent to our GG for Christmas! My favorite part? Enjoying the visual stimulation and nostalgic aspect of the photos! They brought back LOTS of memories! Below is a sampling of 20 photos that GG will enjoy!
Look at how beautiful she is!
Thanks to all who sent photos!
God Bless Us, Every One!

A Purple Bikini!?
YES! So strange, don't you think?
If you ask her, she'll tell you! AND she may even specify, "wiff poke-dots"!
I could not figure out how this idea got into her head. Purple is definitely her favorite color, so the purple was no surprise... but the bikini? Where did she get that thought?!
I had never heard of anyone asking for a bikini for Christmas???
Well, mystery solved!!!
I found the answer in her "Thanksgiving Prayer" book of all places!
"See Mommy!" she said. "One wike dat!"
(pointing at the little purple polka-dot bikini)
Well, santa's ready! :)
